Jon Stewart and Rush Limbaugh couldn’t be more polar opposite
politically and that was never more evident on Monday’s episode of “The Daily
Show” when Stewart attacked the conservative talk radio host for criticizing
Michelle Obama’s “hashtag activism.” How
did Stewart propose viewers could join in his disdain for Limbaugh? With
another hashtag, “F*@KYouRush.”
On Monday, Limbaugh called Michelle Obama’s photo with the
hashtag “#Bringbackourgirls” “pathetic” and dismissed the use of social media
as having any real effect on international politics. This offended Stewart who
went on to wonder who could support Limbaugh in his viewpoints, dismissing the
talk show host as, “Oh yeah, that f***in guy,” and called him a “quivering rage heap”
with no humanity but only the remains of a “superfund cleanup site that was his
soul." Continues after video.
Stewart, of course, is a liberal partisan who keeps up a smug pretense of neutrality, despite plenty of documentation to the contrary.
Liberal media ate up Stewart’s comments, with the insults being
reported by The Huffington Post, Politico, Mediate and Raw Story.
Dozens of liberals on Twitter have actively responded to
Stewart’s proposal, with the hashtag “#f*@kyourush” being tweeted every few
minutes early Wednesday afternoon. Tweeters ripped into Limbaugh, calling for
his show to be banned and for him to be fired. Some people even issued death
Liberal tolerance is alive and well.
